BERKELEY — A 60-year-old man died in a fall from a popular lookout point on Grizzly Peak Boulevard in the Berkeley hills on Sunday night, a University of California at Berkeley police lieutenant said Monday.

The man, identified by the Alameda County coroner’s bureau as Donald Odwyer, of Berkeley, died after a fall reported at 8:24 p.m. near signpost 14 on Grizzly Peak Boulevard, UC Berkeley police Lt. Marc DeCoulode said.

Odwyer was pronounced dead at the scene, DeCoulode said.

Based on witness accounts, it appears Odwyer slipped and fell down the hill, the lieutenant said.
